sumac in orange

The wind was gusting, the temperature chilly (and dropping). It was pure luck that these bright orange leaves stopped moving long enough to pose for a photo.

in the grass

The grass is still green, decorated with the bright colors of autumn leaves.

luscious leaf

The late afternoon light was wonderful today. It drove me to grab my camera as I headed out for a brisk walk. Knowing that the sun drops quickly this time of year I also grabbed my bright blinking lights.

I was happy I had camera and lights to allow me to be seen as the sky grew dark; I needed both!

subtle floral color

The colors decorating the greenhouse at Lyman Estates were quite a contrast to the colors of the autumn leaves. I loved the subtle touch of lavender on these small flowers.

brights surrounded by blue

It was a day of clear blue skies, a good morning for a quick coastal wander. While I have a strong preference for a sky decorated by clouds, today's pure blue against calm water was a good focus for the bright leaves.

in a greenhouse

Today's chill and rain planted the idea that it would be a good morning for a greenhouse visit. I found tiny flowers scattered through the green showing bright pops of color.


A few more photos can be seen in the gallery greenhouses of Lyman Estate starting with this photo and ending here.

oak leaf changing

Oak leaves come with curves and with sharp angles. I love the color change to red in this leaf; in the bottom of the photo you can see a leaf metamorphosed into brown.

butterfly and flower

A late summer day was perfect for watching butterflies sip the nectar of flowers in the garden.

angled rocks

I can sit and look at the patterns formed by angled rocks and calm pools of water for a long time. The contrast between calm pools of water and the wild ocean painted a beautiful scene.

There are still pools of bright yellow, orange and red leaves, but autumn is progressing quickly. The colors are fading, showing more rusty than bright.
